What all campgrounds need-

What do you find missing most of the time in campgrounds and their services?

My question? Why can't they have a long air hose and compressor available just like a sewer dump so we can check air before we leave?

Not sure about you, but I've spent WAY too much time waiting for thoughtless and/or rookie users to dump as is? Now I have to wait for them to check their tires? I'll pass on that option....

Now if you made it available in a separate area, SURE! That sounds like a great idea.

I have a 12v air compressor for that, but what they really need is a mobile bikini MH wash that comes to your site! I hope DW doesn't see this.

What they really need is to enforce the rules in their brochures.
The worst is unleashed pets. Some crow that their dogs are trained and dont need leashes.
Good CGs will patrol, warn once for any rule infraction, then ask them to leave with no refund if no compliance. The way it should be.

I blame most unleashed pets on their unleashed owners! Both should be put on leashes. But what I find missing is free Wi-Fi. Everything surrounds the internet now days and phone service is poor in many camping areas.

My needs are simple, but the Bikini MH wash idea has merit.

Very few campgrounds have compressed air so you can check your tires, In fact I've never seen one that did less they had a compressor for their own use. I carry my own compressed air, 150PSI Crafstman 4 Gallon pancake job.

If you have air brakes , find and use the emergency towing hook up from engine compresser and a air hose ....

Does the engine compressor actually provide enough air to hit the 115 psi needed? I carry a small compressor I bought for my gasser on my diesel coach now.

Yes but you have to keep the air pressure up. That means checking inside gauges and idle up occasionally when you are using the "house" compressor.

I guess the one nice thing about carrying the portable compressor is I don't have to run the coach and fill my neighbours campsites with diesel exhaust.
